However, topping the list of the allegations is the President’s refusal to sign 120 bills into law and why he could not curb the Boko Haram insurgency ravaging the north eastern part of the country as well as the inability to secure the release of the over 219 abducted Chibok girls.
Other allegations include the undule politicising of the security situation; failure to act as de facto President; $10.8billion missing from the Federation Account; squandering of N10billion private jets; and sloppiness/ failure in governance.
Others comprised alleged violation of the constitution/ Oath of Office; failure to implement recommendations of panels/ committees; setting up of ill-conceived, “nebulous” groups like TAN for re-election campaign outside the Electoral Act; failure to establish and inaugurate the Nigeria Police Council; illegal deployment of Armed Forces and sowing seed of hatred and turning one part of the country against the other.
